Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

The Most Wearable Nail Trends from NYFW Fall 2013


There was a lot of nail art at New York Fashion Fall 2013. Nail art is most popular on the west coast and has been gradually making it's way east. After many celebrities including Kelly Osbourne and Anne Hathaway sported the nail trend on the red carpet these past few months, the trend has exploded. It's no surprise it was all over the runway during fashion week and will continue to be a huge nail trend for 2013 and will last into the fall and winter months.

For those of us who can't get into the nail art (like me), there are some much more wearable nail trends for 2013. Designer Phillip Lim featured a glossy winter white, while others had their models wearing muted tones of grey, olive, and nude. Black was also a popular nail color on the runway; the main difference in the previously trendy color being a textured or matte finish. Proving that oxblood ( a deep shade of red) will be a color trend lasting into Fall, Zac Posen and Danijo featured glossy oxblood nails. Several other designers went with classic red nails, including Badgley Micshka, who debuted Deborah Lippmann's red metallic shade with a matte finish called "Red Silk Boxers" (pictured bottom left) to be a part of her 2013 holiday collection.

Whenever new trends in nail color come out, I tend to save money by mixing my pre-existing colors. Create your own oxblood shade by adding a few drops of black to a classic glossy red polish. You can achieve the popular matte finish on any of your favorite shades with the Lippmann Collection Flat Top the Matte-Maker Top Coat Nail Polish.
